I am so excited to do community helpers with the kids.

Make a map of the community and start labeling where all the community helpers can be found.

Make a list of community helpers and discuss how they help us.


Monday:
  • Garbage Truck craft (we will be using crayons to color the pieces and put them together to make a garbage truck)
  • Go thru community helper picture book I made (print off pictures of community helpers and slip them into a photo album and go thru them with the kids asking if they know who the community helpers are)
  • teach the kids Stop Drop and Roll - Fire safety
  • color fire truck or fireman
  • add fire hall to community map
  • read Sparky story online
Tuesday:
  • Bake cookies in the shape of the letter C
  • Color the letter C to look like a carrot

Friday:
  • Color police badge or police car
  • trace our hands and then ink our fingers so our finger prints only show up.
